SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the 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 much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
