Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
