SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of website 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 permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you need to enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
