SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
