SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
