SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many providers change it for security reasons.
