SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
