SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of Internet 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 hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
