SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much 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 used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
