SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases can 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 may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
