SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
