Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
