SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
