Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited because you shall not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
