SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up 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 can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
