SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
