SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up 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 and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
