SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of website 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 when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
