SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
