Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific 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 apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
