SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart certain 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 allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
