SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a number of things based on the type of website 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 web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
