Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
