SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
