Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. 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 through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
