SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
