SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot 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. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
