SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
