SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases could 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 can be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
