SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
