SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the 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 may be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
