Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
