Resellers: Enable SSH for Resold Accounts

What is SSH?

SSH (Secure Shell) access offers users secure and remote system control. It allows a secure and encrypted connection between the user's device and a remote computer, usually a server. If the connection is intercepted, the data transmitted will be encrypted and thus unintelligible without decryption. SSH employs encryption methods, making it difficult for unauthorized individuals to decipher the transmitted data.
