SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ 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 server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
