SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the better security level. 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, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus 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 customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
