SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of 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 web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
When you get a new virtual private server from us, it'll offer full root access and you shall 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 shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up right after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
