SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly 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, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
