SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
