SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
