SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
