SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
