SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
