Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

You could get SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password which you will use and, if necessary, you'll be able to change it with a few clicks from the same location.

You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from the other accounts on the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions.
