SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
