Telnet of SSH Access For Your Web Site

Back to some common questions we receive from our customers...Does iPowerWeb support Telnet or SSH Access on their hosting plans? Here's the answer...
In the majority of cases you will not need SSH or Telnet access in order to properly run your site. Due to security reasons and being on a shared hosting server, our BusinessPro and WindowsPro accounts do not provide Telnet or SSH access to your files. Although if you are on a Virtual Hosting Server or a Dedicated Server plan with us you will be able to have Telnet and SSH access. But this does not mean all of our shared customers needing Telnet or SSH access are out of luck, you may use Telnet to connect to port 110 (incoming mail) and port 25 (outgoing mail). You will not be able to access files using telnet or SSH on our shared hosting plans. SSH is Telnet-like and lacks the security issues that plague Telnet. In order to receive more information on Telnet, SSH, and iPowerWeb hosting plans in general - please contact us at 888-511-HOST. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
