SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
