Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
