SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
