SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
