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 set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS web hosting plans
that we offer are suitable for various purposes, based on what you intend to set up and run on them and the experience that you have. If the server features the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, while you can still set up server-side applications that may be required by your web sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you will need to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. Thus, you will be able to select the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans
which we supply, you will have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You can order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install 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 Internet sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have complete control of your machine. The huge amount of resources which you will have makes our dedicated packages a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you would like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to control, still the root access to such a machine will be limited.
