SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things based 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 when the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
