SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
