SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the improved 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, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
