SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS 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 a number of providers change it for security reasons.
