SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things depending 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 website hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System as well. 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 providers change it for security reasons.
