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

Secure Shell (SSH) is a protocol that provides secure command-line access to your Casbay account. By using SSH, you can remotely log in to your Casbay account and run commands as if you were sitting right at the server.

With its simplified interface, the command line allows you to perform tasks with text commands. You’ll also find that SSH is a time-saving solution that can ultimately help speed up many tasks. You can also do tasks that you cannot do with your account’s included hosting control panel.

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

Just as you need an FTP client to manage files with FTP, you need to install an SSH client on your computer to make an SSH connection. Putty and WinSCP are popular SSH solutions for Windows users. Both Linux and macOS have built-in terminals, so it is not necessary to download an SSH client. Our step-by-step SSH account access instructions, outlined below, will help you access your account remotely.
