Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited since you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
