SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a number of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
