SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
