SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you may 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 enable you to employ the protocol if your PC 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 lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
