Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party won't be able to 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, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
