SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for lots of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
