SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things depending on 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 server permits it. In case 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 employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your PC 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 though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
