SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
