SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
