Secure Shell (SSH) Introduction
Secure Shell (SSH) is a secure alternative to
telnet. SSH enables you to connect directly to
the web server and run command line commands.
SSH provides a command line interface that lets
you run commands to modify the contents of your
website. It encrypts all the data sent and received,
providing a high level of security.
In order to use SSH, you will need to have some
familarity with the Unix/Linux operating system.
Activating SSH on Your Account
All accounts have SSH capabilites, however as
a security precaution it is disabled by default.
To have SSH enabled on your account we need to
have a photo copy of the driver's license of the
account holder. This helps us ensure security
on the server. To have SSH activated on your account
please follow the instructions below:
- Make a photo copy or scan of a valid photo ID (driver's
license or Passport) of the owner of the hosting
- Email a copy to Jagfly Hosting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the cover page, put it to the attention of
"Secure Shell Activation" and be sure
to include your domain name.
- Submit a support request for SSH activation.
- Once your request is received and has been
processed, you will received an e-mail from
technical support with information on how to
connect to your server via SSH.
