SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred 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 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.

In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
