SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, because the information 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 variety of things based 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 in case the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with 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 even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
