SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up 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 much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
