SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred 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 can 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 will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
