SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
