SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks.
