What is Telnet or SSH?

Telnet or SSH is a tool that lets you log in to other computers over the Internet. Telnet is text-based; there's no pointing or clicking. All your navigation is done via the keyboard.

When you Telnet or SSH into your Virtual Web Server, you will be connected remotely to the UNIX operating system. Thus, you can type in UNIX commands and manipulate your web site.

However, since our Panelbox includes all the functions you need to manage your website, shell access is no longer needed. Thus it is disabled on our server.
