SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart certain 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 enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.
