SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may 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 can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
