SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
When you get a new virtual private server from our company, it'll offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all package deals, so you will not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up shortly after you buy it and as soon as you get the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
