SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot 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, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with 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 even though many service providers change it for security reasons.
