Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. These are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require 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 machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
