SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
