SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for lots 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 just about everything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
