Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited since you will not have root access to the server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only 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 tons of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
