SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may 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 the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when 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 specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or 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 a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
