Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited because you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
