Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require 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 hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
