SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
