SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created 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 installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
