SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much 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 shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
