SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because 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 OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
