SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could 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, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
