Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the 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 applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
