SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot 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 in case the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with 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 although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
