SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
