SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
