Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you will not have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which Linux VPS packages you select when you sign up, due to the fact that all our packages come with this function as standard.

You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
