SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, 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 can be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
