Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
