SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, as 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 lots of things with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different Operating System 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 even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
