SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible 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 may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
