SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, since the data 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 based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - 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 Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
