SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
