Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
