SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
