Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain 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 plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
