SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things with regards to the type of web 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 permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with 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 a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
