|SSH / Shell Access|
Hosting Direct will allow you SSH access on your web hosting account, if needed. SSH is short for Secure Shell. It comes in handy for customers who wish to work with their hosting space via a Linux command line.
At Hosting Direct, SSH access is disabled by default on all accounts, for internal security purposes. However, if needed you can enable SSH access yourself with your Hosting Direct web hosting control panel.
Some people find that copying files, looking for specific text, and creating directories is much easier using this type of access. Hosting Direct likes to offer both the minority and the majority with useful website hosting tools they can use to get tasks done faster.
