SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created 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 can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
