SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS as well. 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 a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
