SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
