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 preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
