SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you buy a new VPS server from us, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The function is included by default with all plans, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up immediately after you buy it and the minute you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
