SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

Because the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and safe way.
