Discover more about SSH and how this simple protocol can provide you with the ability to easily take care of whole servers.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server
solutions which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you should enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
