Secure Shell, better 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. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited because you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
