SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
