When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven application that you want to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers which we provide are suitable for various purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your world-wide web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still set up server-side apps that may be needed for your websites and even by offline apps, for example VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. This way, you can select the virtual server package which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we provide, you will have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared web hosting account - to modify the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You'll be able to order the server with no web hosting Control Panel and do everything from 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 control your Internet sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you'll have full control over the machine. The significant amount of system resources that you will have makes our dedicated packages a great choice for any type of content that you wish to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, yet the root access to such a server is limited.
