Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can update particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you would like. You can also create additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
If you order a virtual private servers
from us, you'll have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH to connect and to make modifications, yet you will also have a graphical interface available to take care of your web content and most of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a great choice in case 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 via SSH and to take care of the content on your server, yet 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 will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared web hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without website hosting Control Panel and do everything through a console, unless you set up a third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control over your server. The tremendous amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated packages a great choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, still the root access to such a server will be limited.
