Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
