SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you may 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 Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using 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 many providers change it for security reasons.
