Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain 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 plenty of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
