Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
