SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
