SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
