Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you won't have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out within 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 set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
