SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
