SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you must enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
