SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
