SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
