SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using 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 though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
