Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install 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 tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
