SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly 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 clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
