Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install 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 Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
