SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a number of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer 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 though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
