If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make 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 required by a script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages
feature different degrees of access, so as to give you the option to select the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you obtain a VPS without any Control Panel, you will have full root-level access and you can control everything from a console, unless you set up a third-party tool. The servers which are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel hosting Control Panel also include full root access, however most of the things which are linked to your world-wide web content can be performed using a graphical interface and not a console. You are able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for instance, without any problems. If you get your virtual website hosting server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you may still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access is restricted. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the simplest to take care of.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
which we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you'll be able to do anything that you cannot do with a shared website hosting account - to update the server-side PHP settings, to set up frameworks or media streaming software, and many others. You will be able to order the server with no 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 3 cases, you will have complete control over your machine. The huge amount of system resources which you'll receive makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to take care of, still the root access to such a server will be limited.
