SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could 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 several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.
