Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With 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 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 a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
