SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, due to the fact 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 variety of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
