Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
