SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a number of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
