SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
