SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
