SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a number of things based 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 pretty much anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is established 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.
