Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are executed within 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 server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
