SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
