SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
