SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot 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. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
