Freash reinstall of redhat?

I'm trying to do a clean install of redhat on my server, I don't want to pay the people that host my dedicated in their server 39$ for a restore.

Is there any way that I could do this my self via SSH??

nope. Once you kill the OS, ssh will no longer have connectivity. How would you boot into an installer with ssh? How would you put a boot disk into the system with ssh? Even a network install of redhat requires user interaction, which can only be done if you are in frot of the system.
