SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
