Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By 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 via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
