SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart particular 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 use the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System as well. 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.
