SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may 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 set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
