SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, for the reason 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 variety of things based on 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 when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart particular services like 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 enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
