SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server plans come with SSH access by default, so you won't need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have picked during the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and secure way.
