SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
