Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data 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 can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just 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 a variety of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
