SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
