Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and modify any file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server has no web 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 update each part of the system from a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, yet you will also have a graphical interface accessible to take care of your world wide web content and many of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice when you need to run any software which you can't install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect via SSH and to control the content on the server, yet the root access rights are more limited.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated servers
which we offer, you will have full root-level access and you can do anything that you cannot do with a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You may order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything through 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 take care of your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control of your machine. The tremendous amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, however the root access to such a server will be restricted.
