SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much 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 typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
