SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can 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 customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
