Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
