Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited as you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will 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 with a command line, and 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 hosting server as well.
