SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things depending on the type of web 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 website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System 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 although a number of providers change it for security reasons.
