SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
