Shell access is a great feature on our servers. This allows you to connect to the server and issue commands via a command line terminal. For many, this is faster as well as more convenient. There are many commands available for use in the command line terminal. Below is a list of some of the more common commands that you can use when managing your site using SSH access. Some may require root access and will only be available on VPS and Dedicated servers when logged in as the root user.
