SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet 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 options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
