SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
