SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
