SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
