SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options 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 aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
