SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange 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 enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
