SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
