Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
