Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
