SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about 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 primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
