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 info between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
