SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
