SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a number of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
