SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
