Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
