Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited since you won't have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need 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 machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
