SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about 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 used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
