SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
