SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could 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 required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
