SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed 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 clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
