Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
