SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.

Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage just about everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
