Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited because you simply won't have root access to the server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific 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 number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
