See just what SSH is and just how it is possible to control a whole server using it.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
