SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
