Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option 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 via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
