Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the web server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
