Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not 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 server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
