Working with Secure Shell

In this lesson, we will learn how to communicate with our server remotely.

Secure Shell, popularly known as SSH, is a platform which allows us to remotely control our server over an internet connection. It is a terminal based protocol system which is available on macOS, Linux and Windows.

SSH was originally developed because of the security concerns regarding its predecessor, Telnet. Server communication is now much more secure because of the data encryption methods used by the SSH protocol. In terms of functional power, SSH allows us to basically control every aspect of the server running our website.
