SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
