SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced 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 variety of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
