Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited as you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
