Using SSH is quick to manage your webspace. It is much faster that FTP depending on the task. I learned today that in Linux you can store your SSH connection in a the file "~/.ssh/config" using the following format.
Host myhost1 User username1 Port 8322 HostName machine.example1.com
Once you've edited and saved this file with your SSH configuration settings you can start ssh sessions from the command like so.
On top of that I found that Gnome Do, one of my favorite Linux apps, parses my ~/.ssh/config file so that I can start ssh sessions from Gnome Do! For more information on this check out this post on the Gnome Do site.
