SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of website 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 web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
