SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
