SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 in case the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS too. 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.
