Do you offer telnet (shell) access?

Solution We do not offer shell access to our servers on shared hosting plans. If you need a specific command or action issued which would require shell access, contact us to see if we can accommodate you.

The most common reason for requesting shell access is database editing. Our control panel allows for easy creation of MySQL databases and database users, and also includes phpMyAdmin, a powerful tool for editing database information and issuing SQL commands directly. The powerful tools included in our control panel make shell access unnecessary for creating and manipulating databases.

Our VPS and dedicated server plans offer full root access. If you are an advanced user requiring command-line access, we suggest you look at one of those options.
