SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
