Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the options are limited because you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
