SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
