SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
