SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of 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 server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much 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 primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
