Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
