SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things based 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 when the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
