SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could 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, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
