SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for lots of things with regards to 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 in case the web server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use 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 server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
