SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of 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 when the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
