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 expert users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that 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 is working with 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 even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
