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 expert users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of website 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 permits 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 including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System as well. 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 service providers change it for security reasons.
