SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can 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 customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
