Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you won't have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

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