SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your 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 aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
