SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
