SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
