SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
