SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a number of things with regards to the type of Internet 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 web server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
