SSH -Secure Shell

The SSH protocol is a remote administration protocol that allows users to control and modify their remote servers over the Internet i.e its a method for secure remote login from one computer to another. A user can SSH into their remote server directly from the terminal window. Windows users can take advantage of SSH clients like Putty. You can execute shell commands in the same manner as you would if you were physically operating the remote computer.
