SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a number of things based on 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 if the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart particular 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 which allow you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
