SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things depending on the type of website 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 in case the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
