SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 permits it. In case 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 which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
