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