If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans
feature different levels of access, to give you the option to pick the one you need, depending on your level of experience and on what you need the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you can manage everything using a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be performed with a graphical interface and not a console. You will be able to set up different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without a problem. When you order your virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is reduced. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to control.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans
that we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and the like. You can order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control over the server. The huge amount of system resources which you will get makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to control, yet the root access to such a server will be limited.
