SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
