SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you purchase a new VPS server from our company, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The feature comes as standard with all packages, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you order it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
