SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could 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 shall be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
