SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
