SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
