SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus 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 mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
