SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things depending on the type of 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 if the web server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
