SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things depending on 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 allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS too. The connection is created 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.
