SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
