Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
