web based ssh?

John is correct except that SSH can be configured to run on any port,
including port 80, if you like. It's not restricted to port 22. Many
people I know have begun configuring their SSH to listen on nonstandard
ports as an additional measure of security.

I was in an ISO meeting at the British Standards Institute in London
some years ago where they routinely blocked outbound connections on all
ports except 80. One option I considered was running back to my hotel
and reconfiguring my server to accept SSH over 80, though instead I was
able to talk them into allowing my hwaddr access to port 22 outbound for
the week I was in that meeting.
