Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you won't have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
