Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, 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 server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need 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 only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
