SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety 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 web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server offers which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you must activate. The moment your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
