SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for lots of things based on the type of 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 if the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
