SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, as the information 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 number of things depending on the type of web 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 in case the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with 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 although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
