Secure Shell, better 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 hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up 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, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
