SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
