SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things with regards to 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 website hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.

All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
