    I’m rather new to the hosting side of things. Curious if SSH Access should be used for hosting sites?

    Thanks

    While it’s quite probable that you’ll never end up using it, any decent host will provide SSH access (maybe not with the cheapest plan, but it *will* be available). If it’s not supported at all, it *can* be a sign of a lazy or inept host.

    As I said, most people never use it. But make sure you **don’t** use it unless you know what you’re doing.

    My workflow is probably not in line with the masses, but I use NetBeans as my IDE. It’s configured to deploy css/php/etc via SSH. I also work with separate prod and dev environments. It’s very easy to test changes in dev and then promote the changes. Not sure how I would accomplish this without SSH.

    I use ssh all the time, works great.
