Do you have sensitive or private data that you want on driving your website, most likely from the background? For example, perhaps you run an e-commerce website and you keep track of sales and contact information for marketing purposes. Clearly, you wouldn't want to someone to steal that information from you when you are transferring it to or from the website.
That is why SSH hosting exists. With SSH web hosting, connections used to transfer information are secure and protected. This allows you to transfer sensitive information while keeping your own peace of mind. Without SSH, every transfer of information could potentially be read or even saved and distributed by
unknown third parties. Depending on the information, this could range from trivial to truly threatening. On top of this, any website that collects information from its users has a responsibility to protect that data, and without security like SSH, it becomes difficult to impossible to ensure the protection of that data.
Secure Shell (SSH) hosting provides secure, stable transmission for data between servers. Since A Small Orange prides itself in being a web developer hosting provider, we offer developers access to secure shell hosting on our Linux servers to ensure mission critical data transmission can be trusted without packet interception. For developers, SSH hosting provides an encrypted, effective means for secure file transfers (FTP), SQL connections and file access through Subversion (SVN) and other methods.
Our SSH web hosting solutions utilize public key encryption at the highest standards so you can trust remote connections. We support the SSH-2 protocols with reliable key exchanges and authentication, including the latest patches and updates. Combined with our reliable datacenter and network infrastructure, you can trust ASO to offer secure, up to date shell hosting.
