SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will 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 forth.
