SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that 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 lots of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running 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 though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
