SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web 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 if the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
