SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for lots of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS 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 though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
