SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled 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 may be used for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
