SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact 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 number of things based on the type of website 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 website hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
