Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular 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, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
