SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
