SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based 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 if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
