SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. 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 could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that 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, etc.
