SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
