Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
