SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
