Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
