Shell and SSH access is not allowed on our shared cloud systems for security reasons. (Do not confuse this with FTP over SSL access.) Typically customers who ask for this are advanced users who want terminal access to a server, and that is not what our shared hosting service provides.
If you want SSH, please consider your own virtual server. Only then can you have full administrative/root access to a server.
