Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular 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 variety of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
