SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based 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 when the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.
