Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since 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, and so forth. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
