Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a server and a client. As the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a new virtual private server from us, it shall offer full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all packages, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you could connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
