SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
