Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option 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 with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
