SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
