SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of 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 permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
