SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much 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, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
