SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart particular services including 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 permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
