SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of web 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 if the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is made 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.
