Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option 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, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
