SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could 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 set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
