SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, due to the fact that the information 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 lot of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your PC 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 a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
