SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
