SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
