Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
