SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
