Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you won't have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
