SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows for 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 certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
