SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of web 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 if the website hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
