SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you get a new VPS server from us, it'll come with full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all plans, so you shall not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up soon after you purchase it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may set up and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
