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