Secure Shell, commonly 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 hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
