SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically 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 mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
