Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
