SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can 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 may be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
