SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of web 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 in case the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
