SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a lot of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
