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

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
