SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred 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 third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things based on the type of website 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 when the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your personal 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 a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
