SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for lots of things based on the type of 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 website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
