SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
