Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize any file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
When you order a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server comes with no hosting Control Panel at all, or when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin throughout the order process. In the first case, you can update any part of the system with a Secure Shell console, while in the second, you can still use SSH in order to connect and to make modifications, yet you'll also have a graphical interface accessible to manage your world wide web content and almost all of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server plans a very good choice if you would like to run any software that you are unable to install in an ordinary shared website hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect through SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, but 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'll have full root-level access and you'll 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, and the like. You will be able to order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you set up some third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to control your web sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over your machine. The significant amount of system resources that you will receive makes our dedicated packages the perfect choice for any kind of content that you wish 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 restricted.
