SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because 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 as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
