SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things with regards to 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 in case the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
