SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a number of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many providers change it for security reasons.
