SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced 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 may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
