Secure Shell, commonly 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. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
