SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since 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 lots of things depending on the type of website 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 when the website hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
