Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
