SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for lots of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
