SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
