SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, for the reason that the information 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 with regards to the type of web 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 when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
