Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
