Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're 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 install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
