SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of website 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 if the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
