Telnet access allows clients to take advantage of easy maintenance
of their sites in a UNIX shell. Clients are able to roam through
their sites, change permissions, move files, delete files, and
debug scripts. Compiling programs is also possible. Telnet access
also allows for manipulation of mySQL databases. All accounts come
with one shell account.
Using terminal software such as CRT,
clients can remotely log into the server and execute system
commands directly from the terminal, as if the user were logged
directly in from the console.
Telnet allows you direct access to your files. The files can be
updated and saved easily, avoiding the need to transport them
from your client to the server. Since you are working directly on
the server with Telnet, any changes you make to any of your files
are done right away. Thus, you can update content on your website
quicker and easier than FTP in most cases.
Unlike other hosting companies who let their clients use a
shell which allows access to the data of other clients, our
custom shell, ctsh is completely secure. Our ctsh shell jails all
users to their account, so you can be assured that we do not
compromise security with Telnet access!
