SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.
