Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
