SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
