SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for lots of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many providers change it for security reasons.
