Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on 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 can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain 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 tons of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
