When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through 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 use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
You can take care of your new virtual private servers
at the root level whatever the plan that you have chosen, as long as the server is ordered with either the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, or without Control Panel at all. In the first case, many system settings can be controlled from an easy to navigate web-based interface, whereas in the second, you'll have to make everything through a console, unless you decide to set up a Control Panel yourself. In either case, you will have full control over the VPS in addition to any system and / or custom content on it all the time, which makes this type of website hosting perfect for any app which you can't run with a shared web hosting account because of the limited degree of access - frameworks, VoIP and audio/video streaming software, etc. The final VPS Control Panel option is Hepsia, but the root access to your server will be restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to update 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 website hosting Control Panel and do everything using 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 control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have complete control of your server. The significant amount of resources which you will receive makes our dedicated plans a fantastic choice for any kind of content that you wish to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are easier to manage, yet the root access to such a server will be limited.
