SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. 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 offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
