Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require 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 web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
