SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.
