SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of website 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 hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with 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 many providers change it for security reasons.
