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