Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the machine, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
