Shell Web Hosting with .NET Framework at Ubiquity

Share Article

Ubiquity Hosting Solutions, provider of free, shared, dedicated, and colocation hosting services, has added SSH user-level access and Linux .NET Framework emulation through the Mono Project to its list of advanced hosting features.

Ubiquity Hosting Solutions, an eminent Linux hosting provider, has announced two new and highly unique Linux tools to be added to their web hosting services effective immediately.

The first of these tools provides web developers a rare service within the Linux web hosting industry which has been labeled jailed shell access. With this tool, webmasters are given the authority to connect to the web hosting provider using Secured Shell Handling (SSH), allowing the capability to compress and decompress files on the web server, execute Linux bash scripts, monitor system health, and a large variety of other features. Security in this environment has been maintained for the reason that Linux shell commands available to the webmaster have been "jailed", which in turn will limit the availability of potentially dangerous commands to the users.

In addition to SSH, Ubiquity has stabilized the Mono Project's open source tool which emulates .NET Framework in a Linux web hosting environment. Through Mono, Ubiquity has successfully assembled a stable and effective platform for running ASPx scripting from a Linux system – and in turn bridging the gap between Linux and Windows web hosting which otherwise exists. When asked to comment, Chief Technical Officer for Ubiquity Clint Chapman stated "Linux is capable of so much more than what most web hosting companies are doing. We decided that the time had come to start delivering the full potential of what we offer."
