SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
