SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used 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 customers choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created 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, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
