SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
