SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
