Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited because you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and risk-free way.
