Secure Shell, better 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 server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
