SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of 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 when the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System as well. 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.
