SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
When you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it will 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 is provided as standard with all package deals, so you will not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up immediately after you purchase it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since 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 regarding the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
