SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, due to the fact that 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 variety of things depending on the type of website 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 if the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your PC 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 a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
