SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for lots 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 when the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
