Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited as you will not have root access to the machine, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
