SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

The SSH password could be changed from the same section at any time with several clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well.
