SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote 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 Web Hosting
If you get a new virtual private server from our company, it will feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all packages, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up soon after you purchase it and the minute you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may install and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
