SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
