SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot 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 when the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you may 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 Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established 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.
