SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
