SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used 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 in case the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is using 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 a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
