Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
