SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could 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, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
