SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, since the data 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 with regards to 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 anything - 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 primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
