SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly 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 aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
