SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus 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 will be affected. Although SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

When you purchase a new VPS server from us, it shall come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console.

Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can 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.
