SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could 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 shall be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
