SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a number of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
