Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
