The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
