When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to change any part of the system via a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your online content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages a very good choice if you need to run any kind of software that you are unable to set up in a regular shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect by way of SSH and to control the content on the hosting server, however, the root access privileges will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the Linux dedicated service
that we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server with no website hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have complete control over the server. The considerable amount of resources that you'll get makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any kind of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, but the root access to such a machine is restricted.
