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