What is SSH access and why would you need to use SSH?

Your Wesbytes account can be accessed securely via the command line using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. You can remotely access your Wesbytes account via SSH and issue commands as if you were physically present at the server.

You may use text commands to complete operations on the command line thanks to its streamlined UI. SSH is another time-saving tool that can ultimately assist speed up a variety of tasks. Additionally, you can do operations that the hosting management panel provided in your account does not permit.

How Secure Shell works

An SSH connection is really as simple as creating a secure connection between two computers. SSH is able to provide a safe, encrypted connection between the client and the server through this encrypted tunnel. From here, you can easily transfer files between the connected machines or run programs and commands that would otherwise require more complicated screen sharing solutions. It is as if you were right in front of your server, in the data center where it is located.

What you need to create an SSH connection

An SSH client must be installed on your computer in order to establish an SSH connection, much as you require an FTP client to manage files using FTP. Popular SSH programmes for Windows users include Putty and WinSCP. It is not essential to download an SSH client because both Linux and macOS come with built-in terminals. You can access your account remotely by following the step-by-step SSH access instructions provided below.
