SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could 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 could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
