SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things with regards to 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 when the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
