SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may 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 several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system 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 although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
