Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited as you won't have root access to the machine, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require 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 hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
