Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting 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 OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
