Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export 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. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
