If it's for a whole site, you can set the master page to oslo.master (SharePoint 2013), which I believe doesn't show the quick launch.

You can also hide it through CSS, but I would not recommend hiding it on system pages, as the quick launch can be quite important in navigation some settings pages etc.

The CSS for hiding the quick launch is in any case the following

/** This stylesheet is used in sites where the quicklaunch is not needed **/
#s4-leftpanel {
    display: none !important;
    visibility: hidden !important;
.s4-ca {
    margin-left: 0px !important;
