SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

You will be able to select the password which you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same place.
