SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS too. The connection is created 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.
