SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages feature SSH access by default, so you shall not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials that you've selected through the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage virtually everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and risk-free way.
