SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS 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 number of service providers change it for security reasons.
