Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular 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 tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
