SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't 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. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
