SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a lot of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart particular services including 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 employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
