Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
