SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of 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 website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System 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 lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
