Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
