Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
