SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
