SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things based on the type of 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 web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
