SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
