SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
