SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can 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 may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
