SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots 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 in case the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
