SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much 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 employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
