Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you will not have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
