SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent 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 may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much 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, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
