If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and update any file, which includes system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create other users, including users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate 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 a script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
When you purchase a virtual private servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no website hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make adjustments, but you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to take care of your web content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice in case you wish to run any software which you are unable to set up in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you will be able to connect through SSH and to control the content on your server, however, the root access privileges are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of the dedicated hosting
which we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you can't do with a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You'll be able to order the server with no hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up a 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 3 cases, you'll have full control over the machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to maintain, but the root access to such a machine will be restricted.
