SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
