Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited because you simply won't have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
