SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server offers include SSH access by default, so you shall not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen throughout the signup process. Because the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage just about everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and protected way.
