Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install 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, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
