SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a number of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
