SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't 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. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
