SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
