SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created 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 could 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. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
