SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that 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 as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
