Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just 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 Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
