Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need 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 only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
