Find out just what SSH is and also how you can control a whole server using it.
SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
