SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
