Secure Shell, commonly 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 website hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the 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 plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
