SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
