SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
