SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
