Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll 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 through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
