SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
