SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with 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 could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. 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 number of service providers change it for security reasons.
