SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote 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
All our VPS server solutions provide SSH access as standard, so you shall not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials which you have picked during the signup process. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
