SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
