SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
