SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a variety 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 website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System too. 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 many service providers change it for security reasons.
