SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of web 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 in case the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
