SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, for the reason that 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 with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
