SSH (secure shell socket) is a network protocol that provides users, especially system administrators, a secure way to access a computer over an unsecured network. SSH offers a medium for securely accessing your network services and allows users to log into a command line prompt; execute system commands and perform system admin tasks just as if you have direct physical access to the server itself.
TrulyWp provides its users with SSH access on all hosting plans with the ability to run additional tools remotely such as Git, WP-CLI, composer, etc.
