Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
