SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
