Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol 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 won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
