SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, since the information 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 variety of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is created 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.
