SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server offers we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you must activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding 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 web server, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
