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