SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
