SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using 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 a number of providers change it for security reasons.
