SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit 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 hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
