Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited as you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
