SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.
