Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS

from us, it shall offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all plans, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up soon after you buy it and the instant you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can install and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
