SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that 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 number of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
