Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not 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 machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
