SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of 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 web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
