SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred 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 significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
