Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you have to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
