SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web 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 much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
