Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will 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, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
