See exactly what SSH is and how it is possible to manage an entire server with it.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
