SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case 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 may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
