SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of web 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 if the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - 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 Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
