SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
