SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in VPS
You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux VPS packages you pick when you sign up, as all our plans provide this feature as standard. You will not need to add or allow anything by hand - as soon as your server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you may connect and begin working on your sites or any software you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from all the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You may install any application that you need and which will work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
