SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 if the server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
