SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things based on the type of Internet 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 web server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
