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, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
