SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer 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 though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
