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. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
