SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
