SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things depending on the type of Internet 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 in case the website hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
