SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert 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 depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux VPS hosting packages you pick when you sign up, since all of our packages offer this feature as standard. You will not need to include or enable anything manually - the moment your server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts within the physical server, you will be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may install any app you require and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
