SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot 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 in case the website hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow 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 hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.

Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles in which you could find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
