SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, because 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 number of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
