Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
