SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. 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, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
