SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
