Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited as you shall not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option 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 via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
