SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
