Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
