SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes 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 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 could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
