SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on 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 in case the web server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System 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 although many service providers change it for security reasons.
