SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line.

SSH access may be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of 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 when the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
