SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - 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 Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
