SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
