SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
