Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
