SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
