SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, since 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 variety of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart particular 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 permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is made 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.
