SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things with regards to 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 when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
