SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
