When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of 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 and to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server includes no hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you can modify any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to manage your web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice when you want to run any software which you cannot install in an ordinary shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on your server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated servers
that we offer, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you can't do using a shared website hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control over the server. The considerable amount of resources that you will receive makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
