Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you will not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are performed 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 install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
