SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart particular services including 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 allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is running 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 even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
