SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits 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 including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
