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 used by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a number of things based on the type of Internet 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 in case the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.
