SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can 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 customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
