SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that 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 number of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually 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 largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
