Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
