SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for lots of things based on the type of web 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 when the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System as well. 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.
