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 expert users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for lots of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
