SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
