If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you buy a VPS servers
from us, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server has no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, still you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you need to run any kind of software which you can not install in a standard shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on your server, yet the root access privileges will be more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated servers
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You will be able to order the server without any hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control of the machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any type of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, but the root access to such a server is restricted.
