SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, for the reason that the info 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 lot of things depending on the type of 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 website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly 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 made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
