SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
