SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
