SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
