SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
