Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you will not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain 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 tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
