Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
