SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

Your server will be set up immediately after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
