SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, due to the fact that the information 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 with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
