When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans feature different degrees of access, in order to give you the option to choose the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you will need the server for. If you buy a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can manage everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel web hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, however most of the things which are related to your online content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You're able to set up various different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get the virtual hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, however, the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to manage.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of the dedicated servers which we provide, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you can't do using a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You'll be able to order the server without web 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 sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have full control over your machine. The considerable amount of resources that you'll have makes our dedicated plans the best choice for any kind of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, yet the root access to such a server will be restricted.
