Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
