SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
