SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things depending on the type of website 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 web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
