SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of 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 when the web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
