SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert 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 a lot 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 if the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
