Do you allow Telnet / SSH / Shell access?
Lounge Network enforces a strict "No SSH" policy, across ALL shared web hosting plans. This includes Telnet, SSH, & Shell access. This is now a standard policy of most quality web hosting providers in New Zealand. By having a "No SSH" policy, gives all of our clients the extra peace of mind in knowing that other clients on your server, do not have command line access to the server. This makes our hosting more secure, and less prone to exploits.
Most tasks that you use SSH for, can be accomplished using features in the hosting control panel, and using FTP. If you are on a CPanel hosting plan you can also use FTP over SSL.
If may also be possible to execute a shell script, by setting up a cron job in your control panel, with the commend. Just make sure you delete the cron, after you have finished with it.

Please note, the we will also instantly suspend any account that uses a script which can be used to elevate privileges or enable SSH services. In the event that this occurs no refund will be payable to the account holder or payee.
