Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you will not have root access to the server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only 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 OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks.

With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
