SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a number of things depending on the type of 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 in case the web server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
