SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you order a new VPS server
from our company, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console.

Your web server shall be set up soon after you order it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login details, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
