SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
