Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH.

All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
