Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

All commands which are allowed are listed in the Help articles that we've prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you must use.
