Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you won't have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
