SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically 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 Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans which we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you need to activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire 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.
