SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much 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 will be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
