SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
