SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, due to the fact that the info 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 lot of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
