SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases can 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 may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
