It's the same in Denmark where I come from: most cheap webhosts also
don't want to give you SSH access. :-(  So for me it was a big luxus
when I got it for my site with a US host.

If you have PHP you might find my PHP Shell script useful for simple
things: http://mgeisler.net/php-shell/.  It's very simple, using just
the standard proc_open() command in PHP.
