SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things based on the type of 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 website hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to use 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 even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
