I downloaded SSH (Putty) for windows and a FTP app (WinSCP) and I managed to get in with SSH. But I've run into 2 problems.
1. Once I've SSH'd in I can't run the same linux commands that I've learnt before. e.g. sudo, apt-get, install, pip
2. When I use the WinSCP for file transferring to send a folder to my webhost it gives me the message that it can't create that folder on the host.

What commands you can use will depend on what user you login as and what access rights they have.
By the way, isn't pip a CP/M command? Not that it matters!
The copying is probably related to this as well, and will depend on the user(s) involved and where you are trying to copy to.

The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother.
The moon on my left and the dawn on my right.
My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.

Are you logging in as the root user with SSH? What type of hosting plan do you have?

You're talking about SSH'ing into Linux from Windows.
If the SSH is successful, you should be able to run any Linux commands you want.
Have you tried using OpenSSH for Windows? That's what I use when SSH'ing into Ubuntu using Windows.
