SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because 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 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 when the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
