Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

Your web server shall be set up immediately after you get it and the instant you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
