SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
