SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
