SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.
