Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited as you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

Your hosting server will be set up shortly after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
