SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot 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 will be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
