I am going to show you a few twists and turns for using SSH to log into a Linux server from macOS. I am going to use my Pair Networks shared host as an example. I like having shell access to my web host, which is one of the great features that Pair offers. In addition to SSH, you can also use SFTP to transfer files. Once you have set up SSH, SFTP should work automatically if you so desire to use it.
