SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, 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, 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 more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
