SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used 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 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow 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 web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
