Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular 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 tons of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may install and run any app which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
