What is SSH? How do you control a server via SSH?
SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you can 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 Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
